Armis IoT Device Tracking From Sektor

Armis, distributed locally by Sektor, is an agentless device security platform purpose-built to protect the world of unmanaged and IoT devices.

The solution provides passive, real-time and continuous cybersecurity asset management, risk management, and automated enforcement to prevent cyberattacks from disrupting and compromising business.

The Armis Device Knowledgebase identifies and classifies each device in your environment, registering behaviour and any vulnerability continuously and in real-time. The Armis platform is fast and easy to deploy across an environment because it doesn’t require any agents and it integrates directly with existing IT and security management tools. The platform can be up and running in just minutes, and starts providing asset inventory information and insights right away.

Armis provides a singular and comprehensive view of all the devices in an environment, including remote or off-prem devices managed, unmanaged, un-agentable and IoT devices – from traditional devices like laptops and smartphones to new smart devices like smart TVs, webcams, printers, HVAC systems, industrial control systems and PLCs, medical devices and more.

Armis can identify when and where these assets are, whether they are missing critical security agents or updates, which applications they are using and if they are vulnerable, and can identify remote workers and off-prem devices.

Beyond discovering the assets, Armis can identify risks and vulnerabilities for devices in the office, at remote locations, as well as those interacting with cloud environments. Armis understands what a device is and how it is being used and correlates that information against our platform’s inherent understanding of device characteristics and behaviors. Armis then compares a device’s individual risk profile with your organization’s risk posture to provide automated security and policy enforcement.

If Armis identifies a vulnerability, risk, or security gap, it can automate security and policy enforcement – Armis can orchestrate the necessary actions in conjunction with a user’s IT or security management solutions, or at the network level. This includes actions like feeding device risk data to an SIEM or CMDB, triggering a vulnerability scan, if appropriate, kicking off a process to install software, or blocking or quarantining a device.

Beyond identifying assets, Armis can identify vulnerable apps running on devices. Armis integrations with IT and security management solutions, along with deep device identification and classification, allow users to see the applications running on devices, and if there are vulnerabilities, such as:

* Is the device missing an agent?
* Is the device running an unpatched version of Chrome?
* Is the device running an exploitable version of VxWorks or other RTOS?

If so, the system can:

* Create a CMDB entry
* Trigger a vulnerability scan
* Deploy software
* Update device information
* Create an incident in a ticketing system
* Feed device data to SIEM
* Block or quarantine a device.
